The characters' world is an adventure, but it's like a submarine journey. Surfacing, I wonder where the hell I am. Anyone suggest tips on the reconnection process?

Personally at first I do a lot of listening--but I struck out this time, here, and made a total b*ll*cks of it. So listening is good. I have a terrific wife and family, that helps. Bristles on my face, that helps. Yep, I'm a man, I remind myself and that helps.

I guess no one gets totally lost in characters or their world, but I think personality is made up of many small marker points. Getting out of character and into one's own personality again is a matter of remembering all the markers.

I hope there's a few stories out there about escaping unique voice.
